The Sock Invasion Continues.....

As Christmas approaches the elves are busy making socks.....we have finished another set....this one is for my brother-in-law, Tim.  The elves tried a new type of yarn and it was amazing to work with.  It is really soft and warm.  The elves told me that they thought it might make a really comfortable sweater but for socks it knits a little loose so the socks turned out a little big. 

The elves used size 3 needles with Ellyn Cooper's Yarn Sonnets Hand-dyed Yarns; Zohar's Socks; 65% Superwash Merino Wool, 35% Bamboo; Color: Woodsy; 420 yards 3 oz. 

The socks were finished in enough time to wrap them up and put them under the tree in time for Christmas.
